The guy at Dish doesn't seem to know much about his product.

Does the commercial skip work on cable channels?
I do understand the "30 second" thing between fade to black and I understand it might not skip a 2 minute Cantix commercial. (RTV 4500 veteran)
The rep said it only worked on the prime time shows.

He also said you can't have any other Dish box with a hopper. Is that because it uses all 3 LNAs?
What if I didn't want the prime time tuner at all?

Right now I have 2 boxes, the 722 and the x22 without the DVR. Both are in the living room, (the non DVR connected to the RTV). I am using the RF out to feed the rest of my TVs, all 4 Dish tuners merged together with the RTV, an agile modulator from a PC.

I am not sure a Hopper has anything for me.
